Example text

Go-Get-It was no more. But by now I was convinced that the music business was what I wanted, and decided to explore the world more fully. I had not cared much for school in the last few years, anyway. The other guys in the band were not dismayed and wanted to stick together, all except Hallie, the clarinet man. He had a gal back home and cut out for Washington to get married. One night after I had finished a big bowl of chili up at Mose McQuiddy's combination rooming and boarding house (which catered to TOBA members only), Bernard Addison took me to a honky-tonk.

In turn, when Ollie would get a job, he would hire Danny to play trombone. And that's how I came to meet Ollie. In Danny's own band he also played trombone. We didn't, in fact, have a piano player. Our instrumentation was Ernest Hall on clarinet, Jack "Rags" Richardson on drums, Ralph Dorsey on bass, Reggie Martin on banjo, Danny on trombone and me on cornet. We really had a dixieland band without any of us ever having been to New Orleans or ever having heard any New Orleans music! Among the tunes we played were All by Myself in the Morning, Walking the Dog, Balling the Jack, my try-out tune Cuban Moon and also a lot of blues, the same kind of blues that I heard and liked at the function at King's house.

But he did make one exception, though, and that was for the competitive drill, an annual and outstanding event. The reason was that we would not have to march and could play sitting down. Also, our star trombone player and assistant bandleader, Danny Doy, had pleaded with Pop to let us play this event. Danny was quite a fellow. He played piano and trombone better than anybody we had ever heard. Not only that, he was invaluable to Mr Johnson because, after fooling with the baton for only a few weeks, he was a capable drum major.
